FEMA and the Pay Per Call Department
Does anyone know why with all the FEMA forms and NIMS classes that FEMA does not have a form for Volunteer Pay Per Call Department for Federal Reimbursement? We had a guy from FEMA come out recently and it seemed like he had no idea.

The only reasons coming to my mind are your status as "volunteer" but receiving monetary compensation. My experience with federal reimbursement programs has been volunteer labor is free; however, there may be other costs associated with using volunteer labor, such as housing, food, fuel reimbursement, etc.
If this issue could become a problem for your organization, maybe researching FEMA reimbursement rules could provide some information. I'm thinking contract personnel or part-time personnel status may allow reimbursement. If so, this could require your organization to investigate how to comply with these rules, if they exist.
